7 Spring Must-Haves From Our Favorite Cult Brands
It’s officially the first day of spring today, in case you didn’t catch that distinctive smell of allergies floating on the breeze. Not complaining, of course—I’m totally ready to get basic AF about peony season and start mainlining rosé. It also happens to be the prime time for reconfiguring your self-care routine and sprucing up whatever needs sprucing up, be it your abode, wardrobe or your crabby winter attitude. Check out these fresh picks from some of our longtime favorite brands:
Cloud Paint from Glossier
SCENE: Early morning at Girlboss headquarters. Sunlight streams through the windows. The new Drake album plays in the background. STAFFER 1 sits at her desk. STAFFER 2 walks through the front door.
STAFFER 2: Good morning!
STAFFER 1: Hey!
STAFFER 2: You look pretty!
STAFFER 1: Oh, thanks! It’s Glossier Cloud Paint. *poses with hands under chin*
STAFFER 2: OMG, SAME. *poses with hands under chin*
With some slight variations, this is essentially the scene that’s gone down every day since the Cloud Paint blushes came out from a few weeks back. With four shades to choose from, options range from the super subtle to dewy drama, and as is to be expected from Glossier, they make it easy as can be. They’re still running a special where you can order two for $30 and get free shipping with code 2BLUSH.
Bare Plunge from True & Co.
The tagline for the Second Skin line from True & Co. is “Naked, but better,” and while that might seem like a dubious claim at first blush, if anyone can convince you that wearing something could be better than wearing nothing, it’s these bra-and-underwear revolutionaries. Their newest, the Bare Plunge bra, picks up on a similar theme with a lightweight, breathable material in a cut that works great with lower cut tops. The Bare Plunge Bra is $64 and available in two different colors, with additional options and matching underwear to go along with it.
Make a Macrame Plant Holder from Brit + Co
With the recent launch of DIY products from Brit + Co at Target ranging from the plant holder above to a stamped metal necklace kit and a custom wooden cutting board kit, it’s never been easier to look like a crafty whiz. The kits, ranging from $19.99 to $24.99, put DIY within reach for just about everyone, and they come with everything you need to take a project from start to finish.
Hail Satin jackets from Shop Tuesday
We’ve been obsessed with these since version 1.0, but now that they’re even shinier?! The satin, sourced from Japan, is a sweet luxury made even sweeter by the fact that you can get your jacket customized with embroidery that’s done by hand for an extra $25. And the prospect of confusing poor spellers with the giant HAIL SATIN written on the back? Priceless.
Away X Pop + Suki luggage
It’s a well-established fact by now that we’re all about Away luggage and their brilliant co-founders Jen Rubio and Steph Korey. We were under the impression that we couldn’t possibly love their product any more than we already do, but then they went and dropped their limited-edition pink set of suitcases in collaboration with Suki Waterhouse and Poppy James a few weeks ago. The smallest size carry-on starts at $225 and goes up to $295 for the largest size.
Hysterical Female Tee from Rachel Antonoff
It’s only available for pre-order at the moment, but this tee plays on the sexist, antiquated idea of hysteria as a disease that afflicts sexually frustrated women (yeah, Victorian times were pretty whack), PLUS that bogus notion that “women just aren’t funny” (when they are, in fact, hysterically funny). That’s a lot of bang for one t-shirt. While you’re at it, you can also pick up a uterus pin.
